Superstar Ajay Devgn’s recent offering, the very much anticipated movie Baadshaho is heading on a strong note despite competition with Shubh Mangal Saavdhan. This emergency period has been released with huge excitement of fans and as expected received favorable response from everyone. Due to positive response, the movie is attracting good amount of audience toward theaters despite running in normal working days.
The movie, directed by Milan Luthria, also stars Ileana D’Cruz, Emraan Hashmi, Esha Gupta and Vidyut Jamwal. Baadshaho also features Sunny Leone in a song opposite Emraan Hashmi. This film also brings Ajay and Emraan together for third time after Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai and Dil Toh Bacha Hai Ji. This is also the third time that Emraan and Esha will be seen together after Jannat 2 and Raaz 3.
In the opening weekend, Baadshaho recorded overall good occupancy through out and did the business of 43.30 crores. The weekend total was included 12.60 crores of Friday, 15.60 crores of Saturday and 15.10 crores of Sunday. Now Baadshaho is running in weekdays and asusual getting lesser occupancy than weekend. On Monday, it faced almost 43% of drop than Friday and minted the amount of 6.82 crores.
Then on Tuesday, with little more drop it collected 6.12 crores. On Wednesday, the movie followed the same trend and added the amount of 4.30 crores to its account. With this, 6 days total collection of Baadshaho has become 60.54 crores, which is higher than the lifetime total of Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor’s Half Girlfriend (60.30 crores) on domestic box office.
The Ajay Devgn starrer is not as expensive as Shivaay which means recovering cost should turn out to be relatively easier. It still has some distance to cover in its quest to approach the 80 crore mark. Hence, unless there is a steep decline in the second weekend, it should manage to reach there. Moreover, when a film is accepted by the single screens especially, typically the trending is better on a week by week basis.
